For a couple of days I cannot get Firefox to run normally again. It is stuck in a weird looking state as showed in the screencap attached. It opens and I can click on some buttons from the interface but I cannot close it or enter settings, cannot browse or anything, it opens but its functionality is completely broken... I suspect this is following a recent windows update but I'm not sure...

Tried starting it in safe mode and refreshing the browser but it did not work. about:config does not work. I can type in the address bar but when I hit enter nothing happens.

Any suggestions of how could this be fixed without reinstalling it?

Thanks.

I am trying to use css mix-blend-mode in combination with video. It works on every browser, and every device. BUT it does not work on Mac with firefox browser...

See the codepen For those without a mac, see the screenshot

Does someone know the solution to this problem? I was thinking about adding a fallback support with '@supports (mix-blend-mode: multiply)', but this will always return true in this case because it is supported on firefox...

Thank you for the help and your time.

Been having this issue for the last few weeks where Firefox just won't load YouTube properly. In particular, livestreams won't play, chat always show as "disconnected from chat" and I can't even access the profile menu (clicking on my profile pic on the top left just shows a loading icon forever).

Tried the following without any luck: 1. Safemode 2. Clearing all cache 3. Refresh firefox (When I first did a refresh, it started working again, then I went to sleep and the next morning the same problem is back again)

Any help would be much appreciated.

I wonder if in the new release of Mozilla Firefox there is an Extension that places an "'Extension Button"' in the Toolbar that works as an Extensions Menu including a table of all Extensions, where someone can very easily pin or unpin Extension icons from the toolbar or can handle the Extensions properties.

Herewith I attach relevant Screenshots from three well-known Browsers including this future on the toolbar. (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Opera)

Hi there,

I was wondering for the past few months if there is maybe someone at Firefox DEV/UI team who so much hates the Close multiple tabs menu item, that slowly but surely is getting to disappear?

  1. In the good ol days there was a separate menu item Close Tabs To The Right under the tab right click menu. Which was very useful and I used it a lot.
  2. Then this developer/designer from above, or some political committee decided that to remove that one and to put it as a submenu under a new menu item Close Multiple Tabs. That was outrageous, but I said well, maybe they have some weird reason behind this change so I should probably get used to the new version. In the end the Close Tabs To The Right menu item was still first in the list.
  3. Then since last week or two, I realized that this evil entity above decided to set the Close Tabs To The Right to be the second one in the list under the submenu! And this is too much! I've made like countless mistakes of closing the very important tabs on the left for the past few days by just wrongly assuming I'l clicking the right submenu item.

So guys and gals or aliens or whatever you are, what are you trying to do? Ruin the browser on purpose?

I'm using the Firefox for decades as my main browser, but it is getting worst and worst with every new release. And the reasons to still stay with it are diminishing. Which is sad...

I use Firefox on iOS and I have correctly set it as my default browser. What is annoying, however, is the fact that when I select a text and I click on "Search on the web", iOS opens Safari and not Firefox. Why does this happen? I want to open Firefox when I click on that button.

Thanks for you reply.

Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard

Hi,

In the context of an app using Pixi.js to render markers on a map, we have noticed that Firefox is unable to load SVG images from a data URL, as soon as they have a width/height in percentage.

Switching to a px size fixes the problem.

But what bothers me the most, is that this fails seems to be silent, there is no way to catch the error and bubble it up to the developer. So the image just never loads in our code, which makes the issue extremely difficult to figure.

See more information, and a reproduction with Pixi.js there: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/issues/7473
